Louis XV

Louis XV

Also known as Louis Quinze, was a style popularized by King Louis XV of France. The Sun King reigned in France between 1715 and 1774. The furniture style from this period is similar to Rococo with soft, flowing lines, shell and flower ornamentation, S-curves, rich padded upholstery, rare wood veneers, inlaying and painted furniture.

Bureau

Bureau

A desk popular in late 17th-century England and France distinguished by its sloping fall-front. Derived from the French word bureau or office, the original form, the bureau plat, was a flat covered table with drawers below the top. The flap is hinged at the base and rests on lopers when open, folding up at an angle when closed. Over time, the bureau as a form evolved into a kneehole desk with sets of drawers on each side and a single center drawer. Many renditions of the bureau were used in combination with bookcases or highboys. In America, the term bureau is also used to describe a bedroom chest-of-drawers.

Parquetry

Mahogany

Mahogany is a straight grained hard wood with silky texture, ranging in color from dark brown to red. Furniture made from mahogany became popular in Britain from Mid-18th Century on, spreading throughout Europe.
